Comments:

WILL BE GREAT TO SEE A GOOD TURNOUT FOR THIS HISTORIC EVENT--THAT PAUL DURBIN AND HIS COMMITTEE HAVE BEEN WORKING SO HARD ON OVER THE PAST MANY MONTHS. I HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU WILL CHOSE TO ATTEND.

QUICK UPDATE ON MY LAST 40 YEARS---LEFT NAPA AFTER GRADUATION TO ATTEND UCSB--GRADUATING IN 1973, W/ DEGREES IN PSYCH, HISTORY AND PE---SECONDARY TEACHING CREDENTIAL IN 1974. OTHER INDIANS AT UCSB---BOB FRANCO, CARRELL SWEARINGEN,MIKE CONNELL, JERRY ROWE, RICH SMITH, BRIAN LINDSENBART, DEBBY DODD--

THEN OFF TO FIRST JOBS AND TO LIVE ON THE BEACH IN NEWPORT---C.D. SWEARINGEN AS ROOMATE--WHERE WE TAUGHT, COACHED, WORKED AT LOCAL RESTAURANTS--PLAYED A LOT OF VOLLEYBALL, SURFED--AND GENERALLY GOT IN WAY TOO MUCH TROUBLE--PARTICULARY WHEN MYKE PRAUL WOULD COME AND VISIT.

THEN BACK TO NAPA FOR A "REAL JOB"--WHERE I WAS HIRED BY JUSTIN SIENA HS TO TEACH HISTORY AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES---AND TO COACH FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL AND BASEBALL. OVER A 12 YEAR TEACHING CAREER---I WOULD ALSO TEACH ALGEBRA 2 AND GEOMETRY---AND WAS THE VARSITY BASEBALL COACH AND THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM FOR 10 YEARS. THERE WAS A 1 YEAR HIATUS WHERE I LEFT TO BE THE OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR AT NAPA JUNIOR COLLEGE ALONG WITH KIETH ORR--YES---THAT KEITH ORR !! ALSO--OF NOTE---AT FIRST LIVE SCRIMMAGE AS THE HEAD JV FOOTBALL COACH AT JUSTIN HS--THE OPPOSING COACH WAS PETE RIVERS--YES THAT PETE RIVERS !

OVER MY TEACHING CAREER--I ALSO TAUGHT AT NAPA JUNIOR COLLEGE AND NAPA ADULT SCHOOL (EVENINGS WHILE TEACHING / COACHING FULL TIME AT JUSTIN)--PHEW---WAS A BUSY BOY THEN.

EVENTUALLY--TRANSITIONED FROM TEACHING, INTO A SUCCEESSFUL CAREER AS A LOCAL REALTOR--WHERE I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING FOR OVER 20 YEARS IN THE NAPA VALLEY.

THE CAHNGE OF CAREERS HAS ALLOWED ME TO BECOME VERY INVOLVED IN THE NAPA COMMUNITY---WHERE I SERVE ON THE QUEEN OF THE VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER BOARD OF DIRECTORS, MEMBER OF SILVERADO COUNTRY CLUB AND IMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT OF THE NAPA ROTARY CLUB---WHERE WE HAVE RECENTLY CREATED AN EVENT TO HELP RETURNING VETERANS WHO ARE RETURNING FROM IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN WHO ARE SUFFERING FROM PTS DISORDER. THE SUCCESS OF "THE PATWAY HOME PROGRAM" IS STARTING TO GAIN NATIONAL ATTENTION. FOR INFO ON THIS GO TO WWW.CYCLE4SIGHT.COM OR ROTARYYRIDE4VETS.COM.

OK---ENOUGH OF THAT BASIC BULLSHIT. REST OF THE TIME HAS BEEN SPENT PLAYING, PARTYING AND TRAVELLING--OFTEN TIMES WITH OTHER "OLD" INDIANS. THERE WILL BE OLD AND NEW STORIES TO BE TOLD--COMING UP ON AUGUST 29--SO WILL COUNT ON SEEING MANY OF YOU THEN AND THERE !!!
